SRSP will crush approximately 40 million bushels of soybeans a year. It will also produce more than 900,000 tons of soybean meal and hulls for livestock feed per year. The plant, which will operate 24 hours a day seven days a week, is expected to create 50 to 60 high-quality jobs in the local community.

“By securing financing for the new processing plant, we’ve achieved a major milestone in giving local soybean producers greater access to opportunities in the global supply chain,” said Mid-Iowa Cooperative CEO Mike Kinley. “We’re pleased to welcome AGR Partners to the SRSP team, both for their financial support and the expertise they bring in building strong, sustainable businesses.”

Strategic partnerships like this create economic opportunities that will benefit Iowa agriculture for generations to come.

“We are excited to be working with Mid-Iowa and SRSP to build a facility that will help to meet a global demand for high-quality protein, while also directly benefiting the state’s economy and strengthening the local community,” said Wesley Sand of AGR Partners. “SRSP is well positioned to service the local producers and provide high-quality animal feed to meet the growing demand for protein in the US and globally, as well as renewable feedstocks for a low-carbon energy future.”
